Contribution to Scholarship:
This scholarly work is a project of historical-materialist critique of themes,
theories, and arguments in contemporary cultural politics. It examines the
contradictory actualities and potential of a class-conflicted world system
from the radical perspectives of Antonio Gramsci, Mikhail Bakhtin, and
Raymond Williams. It endeavors to forge a transformative praxis useful
for understanding the current crisis of global capitalism.

From the Foreword:
“As both nuanced scholarship and rigorous critical practice, San Juan’s
work is a brilliant example of how a subaltern activist inhabiting the
beleaguered zones of the Empire can not only speak against injustice and
racist barbarism, but also write in a militantly engaged, provocative way
on behalf of the satisfaction of human needs through popular, democratic,
egalitarian governance. Our task is to acknowledge this example by word
and deed.”
– Prof. Peter McLaren
University of California at Los Angeles
